more than 12 million americans are out of work. now the government give as twist on how it gives enfits to the unempl unemployed. giving you money top start your own business and become an entrepreneur. lizzy, how does this work? who would be eligible? >> you have that number out there. 12.7 million americans out of work and one of the most painful statistics is there are about three or four workers for every job opening. so the labor department is trying to be a little different. it's giving money to americans to go into business for themselves, and become entrepreneurs. here's how this works. instead of getting regular unemployment insurance while looking to join an existing company, a person would bring their business plan to a state-based program and that would be evaluated and then they can get up to six months of benefits to try and use that to make the business work. now, the labor department is spending about $35 million to try this.
it's already happened in a couple of other states, and the folks who support this say it's really a good way of looking at the new economy. >> and how many states offer this? >> so about five states already have programs like this. their success rates are a little bit mixed. >> hmm. all right. well, predicated on what? i mean, why is it not hugely successful in all places? why is it not consistent in every state? >> one of the reasons is really the nature of a start-up itself. right? start-ups can succeed and fail. if they succeed they can have a job creation rate of about two to three per person who is going into putting money into that start-up. but the other thing that's going on sheer when you look at this program, one of the criticisms is, this may be more likely to benefit people who are a little better educated have a slightly higher income, and the question is, is that really who is needed to benefit in this way? when you have a lot of people who have, say, a high school
education, don't have a college degree, who have lot a job in this recession? the flip side, it only takes two people to start a company like google. so -- >> success. >> exactly. taking a chance with a little seed money from the government, a little cushion to be an entrepreneur might play out. >> it's hopeful. nonetheless. lizzy o'leary, thanks so much in washington. five states so far. trying to get more states to adopt this entrepreneur program. so exactly how does the program work and what are the requirements? how do youinvolved? here to help us understand it all. who is eligible? find out if you're one of those five states and then if you're eligible? >> actually i went on the department of labor website i found five bund researched and found more than those five states. first, ask at the unemployment office does my state participate? if testimony does, you don't
have to do anything. the state i spent the most time looking at their program, washington state. you actually automatically sgee a profiling system. it's interesting. this pro filing system knows thousand figure out who is likely to exhaust benefits without finding a job. >> really? >> yes. they do it by looking at your age, your education. the industry, and the demographic fact herbs where you live. they can accurately who is likely to find work and who isn't. if your profile is not likely to find work you're going to get a member saying you're welcome to be a part of our self-employment program. >> how long does it take once they do that? >> sounded nice when liz talked about it. you're just able to keep getting your unemployment and training, instead of where you normally every week show activities how you're trying to get work, now you're showing activities that i'm setting up a job. but the training is what's very
valuab valuable. depending on your state. >> what that training? >> the government. your state department will offer training, like entrepreneurial training. business consulting. technical assistant. through that process, you're earning your unemployment check, and learning. so i think it would be a fabulous program. they've goes into being self-empl self-employed. >> so many people out of work long periods of time. two years, et cetera. wheels start moving. why don't i find way to work for myself? seems an avenue in which to do that? >> it is. i totally agree with what you just said. i find more and more people. even people working out saying i want to get out of the workforce and work from home. it's never been easier, fred, with the internet, and e-commerce. so i want to talk briefly about the kind of financial costs you need to be thinking about if you're thinking, i want to be self-employed. this applies to whether you're
currently working, planning your future or currently on unemployment. first thing is you've got to remember, start-up costs. where are you going to get that money? again, good news, not as high as they used to be, if you're doing around net-based business. where do you get the money? a small business. >> feed money. >> feed money. what are ongoing home expense, the bare bones budget? have six months minimum. >> pay for electricity, food, still goes on. >> great to have 12 months. possibly the most important and most overlooked is health insurance benefits. health disability life insurance, too many americans are so dependants to take care of insurance needs. they find themselves unemployed -- >> can you afford to still -- >> exactly. absolute-o absolute-o absolutely. >> an interesting and intriguing first sthaep really could get folks thinking.
>> i think entrepreneurialship is coming back in a big way and i think it's a future of america. if kbrur unemployed and this program exists, take advantage of it. guest the training and go for it. >> karen lee. thanks so much. always good to see you. have a good rest of the weekend. working moms trying to juggle it all. can you relate to that one? >> i can relate. i can. >> tell you about one mom who spends her day in congress and her nights at home with her family.

oscar lopez posted of the video online, the police got wind of it and -- the attorney heard that charges were going to be leveled against his client. he vol tarply turned himself in, and that's really after he posted that $100,000 bail. >> where's the child and where's the stepfather? >> great question. right now we haven't heard yet that he has been ordered to stay away from the child because the child is in alabama. the attorney for anthony sanchez told me that the child had plans to go on summer vacation anyway. had nothing to do with the incident. currently he's outside of birmingham, alabama with the wife and another one of anthony sanchez' sons. >> so the mother, was she present at that? >> we don't know. >> right now the child s swi-of-with the mother but out of state. >> unclear what's going to happen. >> the district attorney still needs to review the case. so far sanchez that not entered a plea. when we get an update, we'll be back. >> disturbing. thanks for bringing that to us.
